Someone already built a SNES Mini

Not even 3D printed.

This Christmas, Nintendo will relaunch the NES as a standalone console with an built-in library of 30 games.

But what about the SNES? Well, someone on YouTube is already there.

Hugo "lyberty5" Dorison's miniature SNES isn't going on sale - for obvious reasons - but his home project is well worth a look.

His build mixes in a Raspberry Pi Zero, a USB hub, plenty of solder and a clay outer shell, which he then carves and paints to look like a doll's house version of the real thing.

It's less about the fact it exists and more that this was clearly a passion project for Dorison. Here's a video of the build and of the final thing working perfectly when connected to a TV.
